My 6 yr old cat, out of the blue, has decided he wants outside. He was born at a local animal clinic and has never been outside, and he was neutered and declawed as soon as he was old enough. He has the most horrible loud meow and it is constant morning, noon, and night. I'm about to wring his neck.
There have been no changes in living quarters, food, litter box locations, etc. He has never been a lap kitty or lovable cat, but does like to play with a long piece of fabric on a stick. No matter how much attention we give him, he still goes around the house meowing. He is up to date with vaccinations and regular checkups. We have 2 other cats (he's grown up with them and does play with them) and they seem fine. Many of you may find this amusing, but it is very frustrating to us. It's driving us crazy!

My cat has been an indoor cat for probably all but 2 months of her 13 years. She does have a harness and leash, and once in a while I put them on her and take her outside. She loves to sniff every blade of grass, wallow in the dirt,etc. We stand in one spot a long time, and loud noises scare her. People look strange when I say I walk her sometimes on a leash, but she likes it. Unfortunately, I don't do it very often because it makes our outdoor,fenced in dog so exicited! Leashes and harnesses for cats at Pet Smart...
I have a new 2 month old kitten, and he is constantly meowing for no reason. I was just wondering if there is anything I can do to make him stop it's driving my parents insane!

the clock and warm water bottle work wonders also
you might add a tshirt with your scent to make
it really feel secure
kitty is just a baby and missing mommy and other kits
I have a six year old female cat named Rosie. She is wonderful. My only issue is about an hour prior to my getting up each morning, she start meowing and won't stop. I will call her, and she will come to my bed for a few minutes, leave and start meowing all over again. It is not because she is hungry or thirsty because there is always food available for her. Also the kitty litter is scooped each day to ensure cleanliness. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

That's not good to suggest squirting the kitty with water just because it might be irritating that she wants her owner to wake up and be with her!
My cats have all either meowed or started giving me an arm or leg massage or simply sat next to my face and looked at me for about an hour until I got up. They are just waiting to be with their awake best friend :-)
My older cat usually starts loudly meowing every time he has to go anywhere in the car. I was wondering if anyone had any ideas about how to settle him. I cover his carrier with a towel or blanket every time we go anywhere. I have tried talking to him. I've tried not talking at all. I have tried him in the front seat and the back seat. I've tried facing him this way and that, nothing seems to work.

You can give your dog or cat something called Bach's Rescue Remedy. You purchase it at a health food store. It is all natural so no hangover or side effects. Used specifically to calm an animal. I have used it for years with my cats. You put it in their water or food. If you have more than one pet and the others get it as well, it won't make any difference to them. It will only have an effect on the one who needs it. Strange and wonderful product.
